XTC-3D is applied as a coating layer for smoothing and finishing 3D printed pieces.

XTC-3D is a resin epoxi liquid that applies like protective layer for the straightened and finishing of 3D printed pieces. XTC-3D is formed by two liquids (To and B) that mix to produce the final product. The coating extends uniformly without leaving marks of strokes. The time of work is of 10 minutes and the time of cured is of roughly 4 hours (depending on the mass and the temperature). When XTC-3D dry, leaves a hard and resistant finishing to the impact. You will be able to add colours and effects of metal by on very easily. This coating can be sanded if you want to leave a completely smooth surface of coastline Reduce gloss finish.

No longer it matters the good that it was your printer 3D, with XTC-3D will be able to cover any defect of printing and soften all the surfaces. At present objects printed matter with ABS or PLA through technology FDM are not able to obtain surfaces totally sleek. At present the users of 3D printing to achieve better finishing in these pieces use knives , sandpaper , ketones So , all of them very little practical .From here it arises the competitive advantage of XTC-3D, since in so alone some minutes achieves soften and polish any surface. It achieves to delete 90% of the current work post finishing. This special coating full stretch marks and softens all printed surfaces in 3D.

XTC-3D can apply to also to the printed with technology of SLA and SLS. It works with PLA, ABS, Laywoo, LayBrick, dust and other rigid materials. Also it can use for EPS, EPDM and foam of urethane, as well as wood, plaster, cloth, cardboard and paper. In definite, can apply to any material that occur us.

Should be applied 2 Parts of A each of a B by volume. Package Includes XTC- 3D measuring cup of Mix and A stick para Los Dos Liquids, and brush 3D printing. A very small amount of coating A para XTC- 3D printing 3D Size Needed medium. 1 oz (28,3gr) Mixing cover material 101 in2 (651 cm2) applied to 1/64 " (0.04 cm) thick.

3D XTC contains phthalate resin, or phosphates VOC para But is irritating to eyes and skin. We suggest Avoid skin contact Repeated or prolonged para Avoid Possible sensitization. Also avoid breathing vapors and use only with proper ventilation.

  1. Preparation: Materials should be stored and used in a room temperature environment (73°F/23°C). Elevated temperatures will reduce Pot Life. XTC-3D Part A resin and Part B Hardener must be properly measured and thoroughly mixed to achieve full, high-strength, solid-cure properties. Because no two applications are quite the same, a small test application to determine suitability for your project is recommended if performance of this material is in question.
  2. Coverage: A very small amount of XTC-3D® is needed to coat an average size 3D print. 1 oz. / 28.3 grams of mixed material will cover 101 in2 (651 cm2) applied at 1/64” (.04 cm) thickness. Pre-Mix Part B: Before using, shake container vigorously.
  3. Measuring and Dispensing: You need to be accurate in measuring for XTC-3D to cure properly. Parts A and B can be measured by either volume or weight. Dispense proper proportions of parts A and B into clean plastic, metal or wax-free paper containers (do not use foam or glass cups).
  4. Extending Working Time: If left in a mixing cup with a concentrated mass, pot life will be short and material may cure in your cup due to exothermic. Important - Reduce the mass of the mixture to increase working time. Mixing Be sure mixing utensils have a square edge and are clean. Combine and mix proper amounts of Parts A and B. Mix thoroughly for at least 1 minute. Aggressively scrape the sides and bottom of mixing container several times. Use the square edge of mixing stick to bring material off of the sides and bottom of container and blend.
  5. Adding Color: XTC-3D can be colored with SO Strong colour tints, UVO® colour pigments or ignite color pigments. Pre-mix color with Part A before combining with Part B.
  6. Adding Fillers: A variety of dry fillers can be added such as Cast Magic® or bronze or other metal powders, Glow Worm®, Quarry Tone® or Ure-Fil® powders. The maximum filler load is an amount equal to Part A by volume. Pre-mix filler with Part A before combining with Part B.
  7. Applying XTC-3D: Use a disposable chip brush or foam brush to apply XTC-3D®. To achieve the thinnest coating possible we recommend applying material with a foam brush. Brushing on one thin layer of mixed material is recommended for most prints to create a smooth, uniform coating: less than 1/64“(.039 cm). To avoid drips and runs, continue brushing and working the surface until the resin begins to set up. For particularly complicated prints with intricate detail you may want to coat one a section at a time for better control. XTC-3D® bonds to itself.
  8. Curing: One layer will cure tack free in about 2 hours at room temperature (73°F/23°C). Mild heat (150° F/60° C) will cure material within 15 minutes. Be careful: some 3D print media will melt at temperatures above 200°F. Fully cured material will be hard and unable to penetrate with a finger nail.
  9. Post Finishing: Cured material can be machined or sanded (wear NIOSH approved respirator mask to prevent inhalation).
  10. Painting: XTC-3D can be painted and/or primed and then painted with acrylic enamel paints. For best results, lightly sand surface prior to painting.
